Hi. Greetings. You could be having scrotal cysts with or without fungal infection. Fungal infection is quite common, especially more common in men. This is often related to humidity, tight clothing, excess sweating and accumulation of moisture. You'll need to keep the area dry, wear lose clothing. You'll need to see a dermatologist for confirmation of infection and treatment with oral antifungals and creams. If there's resistance to one particular medicine another medicine may be needed depending on your improvement. DO NOT USE OVER THE COUNTER CREAMS LIKE BETNOVATE GM OR PAN DERM OR itch gurad Or QUADRIDERM... this will only prolong the infection. Scrotal cysts if troublesome will have to be removed. Please send pictures on follow up private chat and i could guide you, or see a dermatologist near you. Hope this helps. Dr Govind S Mittal.
